Burrowye Reserve, Victoria

Having visited the township of Jinjellic in NSW many years ago and having fond memories of the place. We wanted to return and stay there again, camping on the Murray River behind The Jinjellic Pub. But, reports that we were hearing from other travellers was painting a gloomy picture, not what we were recalling from an earlier time. I think it took  me all of 17 seconds to see that 'Paradise' was ruined and continued driving to our back-up destination. The Jinjellic site that was once an open area is now contaminated with Picnic Shelters and entry tracks. The small open area that remains has Caravans and Motorhomes lined up as in a Caravan Park. NOT FOR ME. We then continued on to Burrowye Reserve, ah, this is the way it should be! A very large area with many camps but they are spread out, great views and camped directly on the river bank.

Looking downstream from our camp site.

We had a rain shower while camped here, the clouds rolled in over the distant hills.

The grazier on the opposite river bank pushed his cattle across the river for them to graze the Reserve Area on the day we were leaving.
